Come one, come all: See the MRAssholes in their Conceptual Cages! Watch how they promote their Pro-rape Evolutionary Psychology CRAP while Virulently Insulting Feminists In the Same Tired Old Ways...

 [image above is from here]

What follows is some majorly vile antifeminist CRAP. And I'd expect nothing less from these P.R.I.C.K.s. The concepts "humane" and "rational" aren't in their politically patriarchal vocabulary, or in their dick-whipped dispositions. I follow up their nonsense with a comment. It's the least I could do. What follows is from *here*

Product Description
The bestselling classic that redefined our view od the relationship between beauty and female identity. In today’s world, women have more power, legal recognition, and professional success than ever before. Alongside the evident progress of the women’s movement, however, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife. It’s the beauty m… More >>
The Beauty Myth: How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women

  1. Steve Sailer says:
    Naomi Wolf was a lovely young slip of a girl when she wrote this remarkably brainless book. The only reason people paid attention to this idiotic book was because Naomi was young and hot-looking. It drove Camille Paglia insane that Naomi was being treated like she knew anything about life. Naomi has done a lot of growing up since then, and I imagine she must be pretty humiliated that people are still reading this deeply awful book.

  2. Diet, exercise, make-up, orthodontia, Rogaine, plastic surgery, well-chosen clothes…Do whatever it takes to be beautiful! It’s an eternal value, not something invented by Madison Avenue. As you grow old, just pray your erudition, compassion, and material success compensate for your accumulating wrinkles.

    “Beauty is one of the rare things that do not lead to doubt of God.” –Jean Anouilh
    A recovered anorexic and grad school virgin, Naomi Wolf is stuck in a 1960s and 70s victim-mongering feminism. Even Wolf soulmate and “Backlash” author Susan Faludi started to see that female beauty confers intimidating status and sympathize with the powerlessness of men in her latest book “Stiffed” (1999).

    “I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want–an adorable pancreas?” –Jean Kerr

    When Susan Brownmiller, Germaine Greer, and Betty Friedan wrote about women’s belittling mistreatment 30 or 40 years ago, it was called for. MUCH has happened since then. Naomi Wolf missed the train. Women are now 60% of North American college students and climbing. They’re at the center of families and enjoy custody privileges when a family breaks up. They live seven years longer than men and have much lower rates of alcoholism, drug addiction, suicide, learning disabilities, mental retardation, and disorders such as autism and hemophilia. If a woman is beautiful besides, this is icing on the cake.

    “Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: You can smell it and that is all.” –Somerset Maugham

    Naomi Wolfe should go have chi tea and hommus with Andrea Dworkin (followed by a game or two of Scrabble?). They can picnic in the shadow of the Ugly Tree from which one of them fell (Ms. Dworkin) and commiserate about how vicious men are. They can then go off and be “roommates” together in a grass hut, away from all that men have done to culture–like the telephone, the computer, the airplane, and electric light.

    “Everything ugly weakens and afflicts man. It recalls decay, danger, impotence; he actually suffers a loss of energy in its presence.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

    [...]P>”Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature.” –Camille Paglia

    Great. Now, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will be coauthoring a book called “The Work Myth” describing what an utter waste of time our national preoccupation with resume’ writing, pouring over want ads, professional preparation and vocational education, networking and the like are, while in other venues, mocking those who are not wearing the latest designer labels and owning the latest expensive toys.

    The existence of Ru Paul and “lipstick lesbians” blows the femnazi claim that beauty was created to opress women out of the water.

    If beauty was a concept designed to opress, then why would men and supposedly liberated women subject themselves to it?

    Evolutionary Psychology and evolution in general defies feminism, though feminism has never really been attentive to empirical evidence (observe how recent feminists claim that reason and science are instuments of male opression — seems to me feminists subconsciously want to return the Victorian age — women are supposedly irrational and apparently incapable of choosing if they want to have sex either, this being the claim that all heterosexual sex is rape.) Female beauty probably emerged as a means to attract vision-driven men.

    It seems only to give credulence to the theory that extreme left wingers and extreme right wingers are basicly the same, when one observes that feminists, by opposing beauty, fall into the same camp as Calvinists and fanatical Muslims.

    “Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault” -Oscar Wilde

    In a Stalinesque move that would have impressed him, Wolf has quietly edited out all the false statistics and bogus claims of the original book and released the leftovers. No mention of this deception is given anywhere in the book, like when Stalin would remove people from photos and pretend they had never existed in history. Ha Ha! Nice try Wolf. It IS embarrassing being publicly exposed as a liar, isn’t it? Maybe stick to facts the next time. Whoever is impressed by this bilge deserves to be misled, and will continue to be misled until they educate themselves with facts, or raise their intellects so as to be able to separate fact from fantasy. It would have won her a doctorate in Creative Statistics if it was an area of academic study. The problem with many of the 5 star voters of this book is that hatred too often leads to outrageous statements that can be accepted as fact only by fellow haters. Hatred distorts one’s mental evaluative machinery, which is only too evident when one looks at works by fellow heterophobics Mary Daly, Andrea Dworkin, Susan Faludi, etc. The Germans made use of this principle well in the 1930s and 40s too, and it also worked here for a while.

    Does Naomi Wolf realize yet that she has done more damage to the women’s movement than help it in any way? The ammunition she has provided to men’s groups has been like manna from heaven, as it is so easily disproved (see Christina Hoff-Sommers) and her thinking is sadly representative of a generation of women who have grown up with the distorted, 50% view of reality seen through a pair of feminist-colored spectacles. They earnestly believe they can make up statistics and get away with it like they get away with everything else in the society they grew up in. Well, a wake-up call for you, Wolf. Objective truth is no respecter of the hypocrisies of modern Taliban feminism and political correctness. Time will see your drivel condemned to the world’s literary garbage bin where it belongs, where it will nestle comfortably with similar drivel from Daly, Dworkin, Steinem, MacKinnon, Faludi and other mysandronists.

    That male supremacist beauty standards are tyrannically oppressive to women and increasingly younger girls is obvious to anyone with a brain or a heart.

    But let’s move right along to those without either, and without courage:

    Unfortunately, from the comments above, it appears that someone threw a ‘Men’s Rights To Be Misogynist Petty Assholes’ party, right here in this little cyber-section of the world wide web.

    Too bad these fools don’t get how illogical and inane Evolutionary Psychology and “misandry” and "heterophobia" are.

    Ah, you privileged heterosexual boys with all that wasted institutional power and privilege. You’re so, so pathetic, really. Someone needs to tell you: 'Dick-whipped' isn’t a good look for you guys. Not that media insists you have to care obsessively about your appearances. Sure, there are products for men. But that’s no comparison to the ads and dominant cultural mass media, and the multibillion dollar porn-production industry manufacturing the ideas that women exist for men to rape, and that men rape because of what women look like. (Oh, and because men's dicks evolutionarily tell them what to do!)
